World-class technology for software you can count on!
Why we use Java
Java is impressively robust and easy-to-use with unmatched cross-platform capabilities and security features. Java is the language of choice for worldwide Internet solutions, and Practice Director uses Java-based technology to provide many unique benefits to our clients.
Here are some benefits you will receive with Java-based technology:
1. Cross-platform flexibility
A major advantage of Java is the flexibility of being able to use it easily on any computer operating system including Windows, Macintosh, Linux, or a mixed environment.
2. Optimal security
Java has developed its programming with security at the base of its design. Since Java runs in an environment separate from the operating system, viruses attacking Practice Director and your data are extremely low.
3. Better reliability
Java emphasizes early checking for possible errors and allows our developers to detect many problems that would show up later if Practice Director were written in another language.
4. Faster computing
Because Java is multi-threaded, it can perform several tasks at the same time. The smooth integration of multi-threaded programming in Java helps Practice Director run smoothly and efficiently, regardless of what system is running the program.
Because of Java’s robustness, ease of use, cross-platform capabilities and security features, it has become the language of choice for providing worldwide Internet solutions.
Why we use PostgreSQL
Practice Director also uses a PostgreSQL database, which provides many additional advantages.
1. Unmatched reliability and stability
While many proprietary databases crash every so often, PostgreSQL commonly provides years of high activity operation without a single crash.
2. Designed for high volume environments
With its multiple row data storage strategy called MVCC, PostgreSQL allows Practice Director to be extremely responsive in high volume environments.
